Patient Group

The aim of the Patient Group is to foster a good relationship between patients and the Cathedral Medical Group (CMG). It is independent, run by patients, and free to represent the views of patients and carers in discussions with the Cathedral Medical Group. Please find the current Terms of Reference (TOR) for our Patient Group.

Use the yellow boxes below to find out more:


  • To improve relations with the practice by providing the patient perspective.
  • To promote health matters.
  • To improve communication between patients and the practice.
  • To help the practice improve services to meet patient needs.
  • To raise funds to support these objectives.


A Patient Group Committee is elected at the annual general meeting to liaise with the Cathedral Medical Group. The Patient Group operates as a Patient Participation Group and Committee Members attend NHS consultative groups to represent the views of CMG patients. The committee also organises fundraising to support the work of the Patient Group and to provide additional resources to benefit patients.

Please note that the committee cannot deal with concerns or complaints involving individual patients, as there are established procedures for such matters.


The Patient Group is not funded, so we need to fundraise to meet any costs involved in running the group. Those costs are kept low, so any additional funds are used to improve facilities at the practice for the benefit of all patients.
